A yearlong course for students in grades 4-6
The Bible tells us God’s story. It has many parts, but from beginning to end, it is one story with a promise throughout: “I will be your God, and you will be My people.” Through this story, we learn who God is, who mankind is, how the world came to be, and how God worked through history to bring redemption to His people. The God’s Great Covenant series will narrate this story for your student in an engaging and unique way.
In God’s Great Covenant New Testament 1: The Gospels, students follow the story of Jesus, the Messiah and King, as He is born and fulfills all of God’s promises. Each of the four units in this text emphasizes one of the names of Jesus: the Son of Man, God’s Servant, the Messiah, and the Son of God. This book is a comprehensive and heartfelt study of the Gospels, and parents and teachers will find themselves learning along with their students.
